Whoa: John Podesta wants electoral college to get intelligence briefing before next week’s vote
At Hot Air by ALLA PUNDIT:
So Team Hillary’s not only all-in on the dubious theory that Trump wouldn’t have won if not for Russian hacking, they’re also all-in on the inane never-gonna-happen scenario of an electoral-college revolt.
Podesta’s reacting here to an open letter published this morning by several electors (including Nancy Pelosi’s daughter) demanding an intel briefing before they vote next week so that they can gauge, I guess, whether Trump’s victory was legitimate or not. The most charitable thing you can say about Podesta weighing in is that he’s only protecting his own viability in the Democratic Party.
The left is angry and frightened and wants to fight Trump with any weapon to hand. Podesta’s showing that he’s willing to fight with even the lamest of weapons. Maybe liberals will blame him a tiny bit less after this for having blown what was supposed to be the most easily winnable election in modern American history.
“The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security,” Podesta said in a statement Monday. “Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed.”
